About Heritage Digital

Heritage Digital is a new project supported by National Lottery Heritage Fund's Digital Skills for Heritage initiative, which aims to increase free digital skills training and support available to heritage organisations. The Heritage Alliance is leading a unique consortium supported by Media Trust, Charity Digital and Naomi Korn Associates, which will create bespoke training, online guides and resources to upskill the sector and build digital resilience.

Our Vision

Heritage Digital’s vision is to grow the heritage sector’s skills and increase the adoption of digital. We aim to transform the mindset of the UK heritage sector, with insightful, inspiring and practical training and resources that provides inspiration for how to engage and inspire wide audiences with and through heritage.

Why we've come together

Empowered heritage organisations on a continuous digital journey.

‘Culture is Digital’: ‘the average Briton spends 24 hours a week online and digital activity is increasingly becoming the new normal. The Heritage Digital 2019 survey brought to light that poor or average digital skills are holding back heritage organisations. The heritage sector is at risk of becoming irrelevant, or left behind, unable to connect with younger, wider and more diverse audiences and volunteers in comparison to other sectors or compete for funding. This, in turn, will impair its sustainability and capacity to protect and keep heritage and the historic environment alive for current and future generations.

Who we are?

The consortium is formed of a unique heritage umbrella organisation and 3 specialist digital partners.
